Republicans turn on Trump's 'cruel' border policy

GOP senators drafting legislation to keep immigrant families together

Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith & Freedom coalition of evangelical voters, added to the drumbeat to end the child separation policy Tuesday, calling on Congress to pass legislation that would end the process as part of a broader immigration overhaul.

Reps. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) and Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) said Trump told Republicans that his daughter Ivanka had approached him concerned about the images of family separation.

Thousands of parents and children, mostly from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, have been caught crossing the U.S. -Mexico border illegally in recent years.

It would apply to all past and future cases of family detention, so children already separated from their parents could be reunited.

President Trump speaks at the National Federation of Independent Businesses 75th anniversary celebration in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.

The audio, in which children are heard pleading for their parents and other family members, was published Monday by ProPublica in an article by Ginger Thompson. "We have no wall".

On Tuesday evening, protesters heckled USA homeland security chief Kirstjen Nielsen as she dined at a Mexican restaurant in Washington.

"Without a border, you don't have a country". The Trump administration is now fighting a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union that would require families to be reunited after they are separated during criminal proceedings.

Many presidents have used the detention of migrants as a tool to enforce immigration law.

The 26-year-old German, who has been at Leverkusen since 2011, is yet to have a medical with the Premier League club. Arsenal have paid tribute to Jack Wilshere following confirmation of the England midfielder's Emirates exit.

Trump has at his disposal a variety of alternatives - other than separating families - that would promote his stated goal of deterring migration from Central America. Previously, many of these people only faced the regular immigration-processing system without being prosecuted.

As a result, children are taken away from their parents, because they can not be taken to adult jails. Said Trump: "Politically correct or not, we have a country that needs security, that needs safety, that has to be protected". "Hopefully people will get the message and not break across the border unlawfully".

"Democrats are the problem", he tweeted early Tuesday, charging that his opponents "don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country".

The second-ranking Senate Republican, John Cornyn, said they're proposing a "humane, safe and secure family facility" where parents and children who are minors could be detained together.

What are the immigration bills before Congress?

Almost 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the new "zero-tolerance" policy that refers all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn who have already announced they're writing a counterpiece of legislation Is it that hard for Republicans to get behind a Democrat-introduced piece of legislature, or are they really willing to let children sleep in cages where babies have their diapers changed by other children so Republicans can take their sweet time throwing together their own version of legislation?

But it remains an open question how Trump will respond. Portman's tweet makes it sound like he's looking to write legislation of his own, joining the ranks of Texas Sens.

Mr. Trump has drawn condemnation from across the political spectrum over the separation of children.

The children on the audio, estimated to be between 4 and 10 years old, sobbed throughout the almost eight-minute tape that was recorded last week inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facility.
